  • Pit of Success

#1 Wall Street Journal Best Seller

“Insightful and relevant…Backed by theory, grounded in research, and drawing on experience, this is a must use set of ideas. The Pit of Success gives leaders—and all people—the ability to reinvent, reimagine, and transform their future success. The engaging stories and useful tools provide a path for day-to-day actions.”

Dave Ulrich, New York Times Best-selling author and #1 Most Influential Global HR Leader

“Highly recommend! The Pit of Success highlights, and helps anyone overcome, a critical dilemma: that your core skills and expertise can become a roadblock to overcoming your next challenge. The principles shared here will help you become a life-long learner who can overcome each new challenge.”

Jeff Dyer, Best-Selling author, The Innovator’s DNA

“Learning to learn is truly the master skill we all need. Jennings and Leishman offer powerful and practical tools to help us move through the pit of success with mastery and develop the mental strength we need to tackle the next set of challenges.”

Liz Wiseman, Best-selling author of Multipliers and Rookie Smarts

“Relatable and applicable for everyone…no matter what stage you are in life or in your career. The Pit of Success takes the concept of the innovator’s dilemma to a personal level and helps leaders to let go of what got them here and learn to lead for the new marketplace. This is going to be so helpful for so many people.”

Andrea Leszek, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, Salesforce

"Real personal growth often requires leaving behind the very things that got you the success you’ve enjoyed so far, demanding that you take on unfamiliar tasks and roles that can feel scary and unrewarding. Jennings’ and Leishman's delightful new book helps us realize that everybody faces the same challenges and feelings – not just you – and offers straightforward practices to help you navigate."

Rita McGrath, best-selling author of Seeing Around Corners: How to Spot Inflection Points in Business Before they Happen.

“Powerful and practical…The Pit of Success is a must read for today’s leaders. I highly recommend it! You will never have to worry about plateauing as a leader or an organization if you apply these principles. Jennings and Leishman give the mindset, skillset, and toolset every leader needs to accelerate their learning curve and grow their business.”
